New Shepard - NS-21 Crewed - 4 Jun 2022
« on: 05/09/2022 04:15 pm »
NS-21 to Fly Six Customer Astronauts, Including First Mexican-Born Woman to Visit Space

Evan Dick
Katya Echazarreta
Hamish Harding
Victor Correa Hespanha
Jaison Robinson
Victor Vescovo

Second flight for Evan Dick. Victor Vescovo has wikipedia articles in 8 languages so he must be relatively well known. Hamish Harding has also a wikipedia entry, but only in English.

Interesting. Evan Dick is the first repeat customer for Blue Origin. A very good sign indeed.

Good quote: "The patch concept came from Astronaut Evan Dick, who said reaching space in the crew capsule on NS-19 felt like climbing above the surface of the ocean after a lifetime of living below the surface."

If they successfully launch on May 20, it will mark the shortest turnaround between any New Shepard flight. Only 51 days by my reckoning.

Reminds me of James Blish's Surface Tension.

Livestream for the flight
It can be really hard to interpret satellite imagery! Local knowledge & an understanding of an area’s history are crucial pieces of the puzzle.
